BEST Organizational Apps for ADHDadministrator
It is Back-to-School Season! As the new school year approaches, many parents of children with ADHD can become more than a little anxious. The relaxed days of summer offered a welcome respite from the prodding to complete homework assignments, the scheduling of school activities and the daily challenges of ADHD. Now with the pending return to school, it is easy to see that these parents and their children are reluctant to leave behind those lazy, hazy days if summer.
We can help you, your child or teen manage some of these challenges, however. Because our Reading Focus Cards work well with e-readers (shorter size) and e-tablets (longer size), we continue to receive quite a number of requests for lists of apps to help students of all ages with many of these ADHD challenges. In fact, there are currently a significant number of apps available that can help “tame the ADHD tiger” or at least manage some of the issues and symptoms often experienced with this disorder.
Organizational skills are usually at the top of the list of issues, as these skills can frequently impact many of the other ADHD issues. For example, if a student’s study area is always in a state of chaos, it is often very difficult to find homework assignments, class notes and even text books or other learning materials.
For this reason, we have gathered together here a few apps to assist you (or someone you care about) with these organizational challenges. We hope you will find that these app resources will help start your new school year on the right foot. Have a GREAT school year, everyone!
